Transportation. The Trans Mountain pipeline currently has the capacity to transport 300,000 barrels of oil per day – enough to fill 20 Olympic sized swimming pools every day – and product flows at around 8 kilometres per hour. Trans Mountain is the only pipeline in North America that has the capacity to transport crude or refined oil products.
The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project would effectively triple the pipeline’s capacity. Most of the pipeline’s oil is destined for Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, where it would be loaded onto oil tankers that would navigate past Vancouver, the Gulf Islands and through the Juan de Fuca Strait before reaching open ocean.
1 day agoThe Trans Mountain pipeline is a vital piece of oil infrastructure, shipping crude oil from Alberta west and to U.S. refiners. It is the only pipeline that
Trans Mountain Expansion Project. The Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP) is a proposal to expand and twin the existing Trans Mountain oil pipeline system between Edmonton, AB and Burnaby, BC. It would include approximately 980 kilometres of new pipeline, new and modified facilities (such as pump stations, tanks, tanker berths, and
The Trans Mountain Pipeline has returned to normal operating pressure. The pipeline has been operating at a reduced capacity since Sunday, December 5, 2021, when it was safely restarted following a 21-day precautionary shutdown as a result of heavy rains and flooding in British Columbia and Washington state.

The Trans Mountain Expansion Project is the proposed twinning of an existing oil pipeline that was built in 1953. It runs from Edmonton, Alberta, to the Westridge Marine Terminal and the Chevron refinery in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Trans Mountain is the only pipeline in North America that carries both refined product and crude oil in batches. On any given day, the pipeline is used to move different grades or varieties of petroleum. Products moving next to each other in the pipeline can mix.
The Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project, an expansion of the original Trans Mountain Pipeline (built in 1951), is a 1,150 km pipeline between Strathcona County, Alberta and Burnaby, BC. in Canada. The pipeline is the
Trans Mountain started operations in 1953 and is unique among the major pipelines out of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin in that it ships the full spectrum of oils (from refined petroleum products to heavy crude oil) in a single
Trans Mountain is expanding its current 1,150 km pipeline between Strathcona County, Alberta and Burnaby, BC. The expansion would create a twinned pipeline that would increase the nominal capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per
The project proposal underwent a 29-month review process with the National Energy Board (NEB) and it was recommended that the pipeline be approved because it was in the Canadian public interest. The Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project was approved by the Government of Canada on November 29, 2016.
The C$12.6 billion ($10bn) Trans Mountain pipeline twinning project is one of four major energy-related construction projects underway in B.C.
